His research encompasses theoretical and empirical inquiry into issues of information in capital markets, performance measurement and incentive compensation design, and international aspects of corporate governance. Professor Robert Bushman has published his research widely in accounting, economics, and finance journals, and he has been on the editorial boards of several leading journals.
